Stood by at 3 am, dismissed at four thirty when everything was reported all clear, and came down to camp and finished my snooze.

Church parade in our mess tent this morning. I had to read the lesson as the padre had forgotten his glasses.

The major got back from Kantara this evening, and had heard good news from the Flanders and Russian fronts.

Mail in tonight, a lot of news from home. Jo and his squadron have gone to France with the 60th Division. Heard from Ben Stephens; he's been invalided home after five months on Mudros and the Peninsular and three months here.

Very full intelligence report in tonight, the Turks are reported to have thirty thousand troops now.
